Broadwell Based NUCs Spotted on Intel’s Site
Bohs Hansen / 2 years ago
Intel’s own website has now confirmed what has been rumoured for a while, the next generation NUC devices powered by Broadwell based CPUs; the CPU isn’t the only thing upgraded, as the new versions sport both M.2 slot and USB charging.
Three images have appeared on Intel’s website and the corresponding support sites for the new products are online as well. From those, we can get quite a bit of information. Next to the M.2 and default mini-PCIe slot, there is also a normal SATA port for an additional 2.5-inch drive, it has two DDR3L memory banks. The CPU isn’t visible on the photos “leaked”, as it is located on the rear of the motherboard.
Unconfirmed information also points toward wireless charging function and NFC support. ComputerBase, who spotted this first, reached out to Intel for a comment, but Intel didn’t want to comment further on upcoming products as “errors” and “leaks” of this kind happen from time to time. We can most likely expect to see Intel’s new NUC’s presented at CES 2015 in Vegas.
